More Information

Career GoalI plan on attending Dental School in the near future! I look forward to the opportunity to help others and serve my community!
I wanted to become a BEST Peer Mentor...To help! I became a peer mentor to help other undergrads with areas they're unsure of, like what classes to take, how to become more involved on campus, what you can do with a Biology degree, etc. One of the best ways, at least for me, was talking with upperclassmen and talking about their experiences and advice.
Campus InvolvementI am an active member of Ames Community Youth Club, St. Thomas Aquinas community, ISU pre-dental club, and current Vice President of Freddy Court Community Council. This is my second year of being a BEST peer mentor, and I was a previous undergrad TA in Biol 313, Biological Genetics, Lab section, and the current TA for Biol 350, Comprehensive Human Anatomy. I was very fortunate to study abroad last past summer for three weeks in Denmark, expanding my knowledge and experience in healthcare. I've participated in the Pre-Heath Panels for both Perspective and Admitted Students Day. Outside of Iowa State, I volunteer at the Boy and Girls Club in Ames and work at Great River OMS as a Dental Assistant.
